KonMari Method – Komono : Household Supplies

Loading ....


Whoops! Sorry for the SUPER long video. I decided to go ahead and use the KonMari method to sort through my household supplies (cleaning products etc) just to see what I had and organise it better. There is not a huge amount purged but I feel it has been a useful exercise anyway.

Coming up next I will be moving into ‘other’ categories as I am skipping the kitchen goods and supplies as mentioned towards the end of the video.

If you are using the KonMari method I would love to hear how you are finding it and if you have any suggestions for ‘other’ categories please do let me know.

  1. Do you have toxic waste collection in your community?

    1. I think there were places we could take certain kinds of hazardous materials to.

  2. Plus Laundry soap and shampoo. We just use one bottle of each type.

  3. We only use vinegar, water, baking soda and lemons. I do use Clorox .

  4. Hey sweetie! 🙂 I am loving your Konmari videos! Moving on to your jewelry, craft & art decluttering vids next. Already watched quite a few of your other Konmari vids already. Thank you so much for posting these. They are SO motivating!! =o) Btw, I have had the Method shower cleaner for 6+ months now. It’s great for the fact that it’s “eco-friendly”. However, I don’t think that the actual product does very much for my shower. Well, I guess I should say that it doesn’t do a FANTASTIC job of cleaning the shower, just mediocre. Also, I live in America & used to do the “coupon” thing. It gets way too ridiculous having SO MANY of the SAME products. I quit after maybe a year of it, not even. Plus it’s a LOT of work finding, clipping, etc. Anyways, again, thanks for posting all these vids!! Sorry for the super long comment, just had a lot to say lol. Have a great day!!

    1. I found the KonMari method was a much easier way of parting with things than just the traditional way of thinking ‘what do I want to get rid of’ because it’s more about thinking what you really want to keep. I’m still downsizing my belongings now and will continue to do so until we move. I currently live in Scotland but we are moving to Melbourne, Australia hopefully in around 4 months time. That’s so strange that when the stores do those offers you don’t actually have to buy the amount stated to get the offer. Over here in the UK if it says BOGOF you need to buy 2 to get one free. If it’s 3 for 2 you need to buy 3 to get them for the price of 2. I’ll check out your channel 🙂

    2. +Diane Bishop I couldn’t agree more, only buy what we need. :0) Right now I’m trying my best to declutter my own home, to get my house back “in shape”. I wish I could do the Konmari method, but I have a VERY hard time parting with things. Hopefully I’ll get there one day, the book was amazing. Do you still follow the method? How did your declutter effect u? About coupons/sales here in America, when stores offer BOGO or so many for so much, 99% of the time u DO NOT have to buy 2 or however many they specify in order to get that sale price. Does it work the same way there? What country are you from btw? (if u don’t kind me asking…) Thanks for the reply. I have some videos up too (haven’t posted in awhile though), if u’d like to check them out & become friends. :0)

    3. Thank you for your comment. I think with these daily shower cleaners you still need to get in there and give it a good scrub every now and then. They seem to help reduce how often you need to clean them but they never keep them totally clean. I think the Method cleaning products smell so much nicer than other brands though and I love the fact that they are more eco-friendly and not tested on animals. I used to wish we could do couponing more like you get in America but I don’t wish that anymore. Buying what you need when you need it is so much better. We have a lot of ‘buy one get one free’ or ‘3 for the price of 2’ so if it’s things I use a lot of like toothpaste or hand soap then I buy them on offer but only if I’m already running low and will need them before they are likely to go on offer again. It’s so satisfying using products up!

  5. still a good exercise especially if you talk to your partner and say don’t buy until we use up these and a lot of cleaners can be used for more than one purpose …
    also if you emigrate to australia you don’t want to take cleaners or pantry items for that matter. whenever i am moving i make dinners based on what is on the pantry to use it up … H

    1. +Helen Sloan Yes it was definitely useful to go through and just see exactly what we had sort it all out. I make sure Steven asks me before buying any cleaning products now because I know exactly what we need and what we don’t. We have been able to use up a couple of things so it’s gradually reducing a bit!
      We’ll need to work on reducing our food as well. Over time we’ll be making sure we use up everything in our freezer and as much from our cupboards as possible. We can’t take food with us so anything that isn’t used up will be either thrown away or given to family if they want it.

  6. I probably have just as much. I haven’t gathered everything up yet.

    1. +Lizbetstyle I didn’t realise how much there was until I put it all in one place!
